Fanquip has developed a new fan technology, complete with safety monitoring system, specifically for use when handling asbestos and other substances that are harmful when airborne.
Designed and manufactured in Australia, the Fanquip Negative Air Filter Fan is for applications where contaminated airborne particles must be removed to create a clean, safe working environment.
These fans have a ‘dust load monitoring system’ and have been developed in response to strong calls from professionals holding specific licences for removal of product likely to cause harmful or toxic conditions when being handled. Considering trades people need specific training and licences to handle potentially carcinogenic product, Fanquip saw the need for a specific fan technology to keep people safe while carrying out their work.
The Fanquip Negative Air Filter Fan is configured with a HEPA filter, tested to AS 1324 to achieve minimum efficiency of 99.99%. The unit is fitted with a failsafe dust load monitoring system which notifies the operator when the filter is dirty, by means of a two-stage alarm and flashing light.
First stage alarm is activated when the filter system is reaching a stage where its replacement is required. The stage two alarm warns at the critical stage, once the filter has dropped below its rated capacity. When the alarm sounds again, the unit will be immobilised for total workplace safety.
The unit is manufactured to handle the toughest of environments such as building and construction sites, quarries, dilapidated old asbestos-roofed warehouses and sites undergoing toxic remediation.
